The genomic and metabolic diversity of Rickettsia
2007 (English)In: Research in Microbiology, ISSN 0923-2508, Vol. 158, no 10, 745-753 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Comparative genomics of Rickettsia and Orientia has revealed an exciting interplay between reductive evolutionary forces acting on metabolic genes in all species and proliferation of mobile genetic elements in some species. These contradictory evolutionary forces highlight the influence of chance, adaptation and host-cell exploitation during the evolution of intracellular bacteria.
